Starbucks Announces Raises for Its Employees

Following in the footsteps of Walmart, Starbucks has become the latest  company to announce raises for its employees in the wake of the recent  GOP tax overhaul. While Starbucks declined to specify exactly how much  of a wage increase its employees will get, the AP notes that employees  will be gifted at least $500 worth of stock and will now be able to earn  paid sick time off. Furthermore, the company’s parental leave benefits  will now include non-birth parents.
